I recently came across this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try, especially since it was already egg-free. I also had every intention to make the crust in the recipe. In my attempt to half the crust recipe, I halved part of the ingredients and not others. Fail. I was then out of butter. So, rather than take a trip to the store. I made one of my old stand-by shortening crust recipes, which happened to be quicker crust recipe. The butter crust in the recipe is a little more involved.
Regardless, of which crust you use, this pie is delicious! We will for sure be having it again. I think I may make it a Christmas tradition at my house. I could even make a gluten-free crust-less version for my brother-in-law.
My pictures do not do this pie justice. Look at the pictures in the link!
